"Delightful! and Good fun"
This was our first stop after our arrival to the UK from the USA... we loved it. The pub, the food and all the staff were so so friendly and helpful. The room with bathroom was was in a separate small adorable building. The location was superb and we walked in the small village of Burchclere. We were also able to walk to Highclere Castle which was the reason we stayed at this pub B&B. There was construction to expand the patio, etc. which will prove to be very nice when completed.

Likes:
Everything - the location, staff, pub food and beer, and the room. Just one comment that the breakfast was fine yet if you wanted anything hot - you had to pay extra. In other B&B this did not happen

"Superb Country Pub"
I was warmly welcomed at the bar and taken to my room. I was able to log onto the free wifi and settle into the spacious and beautifully decorated room. I then had a delicious meal in the pub and enjoyed a quiet night's sleep. I am pretty tall (6'3") but unusually the shower was a good height and was powerful and hot. I had to leave very early, before breakfast was available but I'm sure it would have been superb. Overall, an excellent stay. Read less
